Spring Polka Dots

The weather has been pretty nice lately! It's exactly the temperature that I like.. not too cold or hot. A lot of people are excited for summer which I am too, but I cannot stand how hot it gets! I really love the way it feels right now where it's a bit chilly, but I'm still able to go outside in jeans and a sweater and feel comfortable.
 Plus now that it's not as bitter cold as it was in winter, I have finally been able to go running in usually a long sleeve and leggings. I actually stopped running this winter because of how cold and snowy it got (and maybe I was lazy too haha) and I didn't want to get sick. However, once I heard that I had to run the mile in under a certain time, I immediately put my running shoes on and off I went! It felt so nice and though I was huffing a bit at 2 miles, I loved it. Running is such an escape for me because my mind is always racing, but when I run, it actually kinda stops working and I enjoy it haha. =)

Anyways here is my outfit today-  I wanted to embrace the slightly warmer weather with this adorable polka dot dress! 

Forever 21 Polka Dots

Forever 21 Polka Dot Dress

My sister has been so sweet lately and agreed to help my photos! It makes things so much easier for me! The photos today were taken outside and we were actually trying to figure out the lighting. It was bright, but the sun wasn't out so were confused on how to set the camera up haha.. we ended up just using the automatic settings! This dress was purchased a while back from forever 21 and I fell back in love with it again after putting it on today! The dress fits me to a "T" and I love the fabric of it. It's quite lightweight and super soft!

The dress is a black color with a pattern of  white polka dots on it. The waist is cinched in and the dress actually came with a belt. However, I opted not to wear the belt since I felt that the belt hit me in a weird area. It didn't really land on my waist, but rather on my ribcage which I felt uncomfortable with. The back of the dress has a cute little keyhole and a button.
I think spring is a perfect time to bust out dresses and skirts so I am pretty excited to start being able to wear more of them. I feel that jeans are often so tight and constricting on my legs.. does anyone else feel this? haha

Infinity Bracelets

For my shoes,  I opted to wear a simple pair of black flats. I also have on two bracelets and a ring with this outfit. The two bracelets are beaded with a huge infinity charm in the center. Both bracelets are the same except for the color: one is white and the other is a soft pink. On my finger, I have on a cute ring I got during Black Friday. I really love this ring and it's one of the rings that I often reach for. It's quite a simple ring, but I love the design of it a lot.

This pic was just for fun... The camera actually caught me in the air!
Now that I'm looking at it, I'm realizing March is almost over!! In a few more days, it will be April, scholarship deadlines and spring break, AP testing, and then basically school will be over for me. I'm trying to not let senioritis get to me until after the AP test.. and after that, I'm not going to resist it at all haha! I'm going to enjoy the last few months of being a high school student to the fullest! It makes me so sad since I feel like everything is ending and I'm kinda closing a huge chapter of my life! I've literally got such a mix of emotions about everything right now... =)

Dress- Forever 21
Flats- Kohls
Bracelet- Similar at Jcpenny
Ring- Similar at Forever 21

Is it finally warming up a bit where you are?
Who else prefers dresses + skirts over jeans?
Did you guys experience the same emotions when you graduate high school/college as me?

  10. That's a cute dress! I also prefer dresses and skirts, especially rompers, over jeans during the warmer months. My area is getting way too warm (high 70s, low 80s) right now. And I also experience the same emotions. My senior year in high school was both the best and hardest year. Even now, I miss my high school senior year (currently a college junior).

  30. Aw, you're so cute! I agree with you - I'm enjoying this "in between" temperature... I always wish so hard for summer but once it arrives, I can't stand how hot it gets, haha.

    This is a really pretty dress! I bet it would also look cute with tights boots and a cardigan :)

    Keep in touch,

  41. You look so cute! Especially your fun pic. And oh my goodness, I HATE jeans. I felt like I was in denim jail during this brutal winter since it was the only thing I could wear for warmth. Down with pants, go skirts/dresses!

  44. Super cute dress! I still have more jeans than dresses now (shorts the most), but I'm definitely loving dresses and skirts these days too! :)

    Anyway you're lucky you have a sister to help you take your outfit shots. I wish I did too so I don't have to keep forcing either my boyfriend or one of my brothers to take mine. Hahah!

    1. hehe it's the opposite for me (mainly because I horde dresses), but I almost never wear them for some reason!
